WHAT WE BELIEVE
ABOUT GOD We believe in one God who eternally exists as three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). God alone is the Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of the universe. Jesus is the Son of God. He became human to reveal God to us and to become the Savior of the world. The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son, and lives within all true Christians.
ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES We believe the Holy Bible was written by men, divinely inspired, and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. The Bible is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It is the supreme standard for judging all human conduct.
ABOUT MAN We believe man was created in the image of God as the crowning work of creation. Man was originally created without sin, but freely chose to disobey God and thereby brought sin upon the entire human race. Only the grace of God can restore fellowship with God.
ABOUT SALVATION We believe salvation is offered freely to all who will accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Salvation is a work of God’s grace, whereby sinners become forgiven children of God by trusting and following Jesus.
ABOUT THE CHURCH We believe the Church to be the body of Christ, which includes all who have trusted in Jesus throughout all ages. The church exists to glorify God by loving Him and making Him known to others.
ABOUT BAPTISM We believe Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This symbolizes a believer’s faith in the risen Savior as well as the believer’s death to sin. We believe baptism should follow a person’s commitment to trust and follow Jesus.
ABOUT THE LORD’S SUPPER We believe the Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience, which helps Christians to recall, celebrate, and give thanks for Jesus’ death by receiving the bread and cup. We observe the Lord’s supper regularly throughout the year.
ABOUT END TIMES We believe God, in His own time and way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. Jesus will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth. The dead will be raised, and Christ will judge all men. The righteous, through faith in Jesus, will be given resurrected and glorified bodies. They will receive their rewards and will live forever in heaven with the Lord.
